Sounds Like San Diego: July 9

White Lung make waves at the Casbah

This week has been emotionally draining, but music has always been a lifeline for us, so we shall continue on. In the daytime, you can catch SheFest in North Park Community Park or the afternoon MLB All-Star concert series with Tori Kelly at the Embarcadero. On the heels of their new release, Switchfoot host their annual Bro-Am at Moonlight Beach, and there's a Cheese and Beer fest at SILO. By night, Royal Headache rock Soda Bar, Toad the Wet Sprocket and Rusted Root are at the Observatory and Body Language play the Hideout. My big show for the night, however, is White Lung, whose music is getting a lot of love from Sirius XMU. They are getting the kind of buzz and support that makes you want to be sure to catch them before they're too big for the little ol' Casbah.
